The collaboration is expected to fit in well with the existing range available and to meet with the brands traditions and values with the use of quality materials and embellishments as is to be expected from Radley London. The collection will be available in all stand-alone Radley stores, concessions and via the website from September 2011 prices from £40-£275.
